INFORMATION FOR PARENTS AND STUDENTS 1. SIX of the subjects studied in Year 9 continue in Year 10. 5. This booklet contains a schedule of proposed subjects at all levels. These subjects are: English Choosing a subject in Year 10 does NOT commit the student to take it Mathematics and Statistics in Year 11. Health and Physical Education Science 6. If students require guidance they should seek this as soon as possible Social Studies from the following people: Tutor Mentoring Careers Advisor Senior Leadership Team 2. The other subjects studied this year become optional in Year 10. Subject teacher Whanau Tutor / Mentor Students are required to choose THREE option subjects for Year 10. The option courses will be for the whole of the Year 10 school year. 7. Students must make their option choices during Week 5 of Term 3. Option selection must be completed online by Monday 27 August (Week 3. Consider carefully these two questions: 6). Late selection of options may mean that students will not receive (a) What is the highest level you hope to reach at school? their first choice of options. (b) What subjects are you likely to take at that level? 8. Course costs listed for each subject include resources, activities and Then work backwards to the lower levels to choose your Year 10 trips that are highly recommended as being conducive to optimal subjects. Remember that ability, interest and future usefulness are student learning. Please refer to each individual course descriptor for important reasons for your choices. All students should read the Levels the compulsory items required for that course. 1-3 2019 Information Book as well as the preamble in each of the senior option booklets. Scan the prerequisites for the senior subjects that you 9. Note: may wish to study in the future. All option booklets as well as the You cannot take both 10DRT (Digital Art) and 10ART (Visual Art) Auckland University Undergraduate prospectus can be accessed on Office 365 or the BDSC website. It is important to note that many Visual PAGE 3 and Performing Art, Technology and Languages courses require students to have taken the course in the previous year. Students must plan their courses to ensure that they meet all the prerequisites. If you are considering future university study then you should become familiar with all university requirements e.g. university entrance, literacy, numeracy, approved subjects and Table A/Table B subjects. Careful planning now will prevent future problems in accessing courses. 4. Although every effort will be made to provide the subjects chosen, no guarantee can be given that all will be possible. Because of the need to have classes of a certain size, some students may be asked to change options. Similarly if not enough students choose a particular option it may be cancelled.
